I was responsible for...
Throughout my time at Wes and Willy, I created artwork ideas, utilized PhotoShop for their catalog images, created and filled out submissions for collegiate rights and well as receiving approvals. I attended creative meetings, aided Screen Printers in pulling/catching products, performed inventory tasks and processed orders.

I accomplished...
I got to do so many things hands-on with this company and truly got an understanding of how a smaller company can still be able to produce for so many clients and customers across the nation.

I learned...
The greatest thing I learned was the level of processes it takes to get an idea into a licensed approved design and then getting it to the consumer.

Advice for others...
Keep your options open and don't be afraid to apply to as many places as possible. You might surprise yourself and enjoy a company you never would have thought to work for.
